The contribution moves from geographical interests and aims focusing on the rep- resentation of space in the scenic installations of opera. The melodrama represents an artistic expression that signifies the Western cultural dimension starting at least from the late Sixteenth century. Finding syntheses among music, words and drama, opera continues today to draw nourishment from its reproduction and re-proposal in scenic solutions, directorial visions and new productions. Through the critical comparison between pairs of alternative sets of three works that characterise the Italian musical production – Lucia di Lammermoor by Gaetano Donizetti, La Traviata by Giuseppe Verdi and Turandot by Giacomo Puccini –, we want to reveal the terms in which the geograph- ical discourse meets cultural instances in the reading of the landscape.
